Reviewer Jocelyn

"I like my ski to be comfortable and handling bumps and loose snow without effort. I don't go off-piste more than on the side of groomers. A typical all conditions on the piste skier with comfort and style as priorities."

Powder big mountain ski

The Armada Norwalk is the perfect ski for fresh powder on slopes. It is a very playful freeride ski, which makes you really float. The only thing is, not every day brings you powder. Through the wideness of the Armada Norwalk, it is quite difficult to ski this ski on bumpy slopes. The ski looses it’s lightness which it has when skiing in powder. Having said this and knowing that I like to stay within resort bounderies, the Armada Norwalk deserves my 3 stars. Pure freeriders will value this ski a lot higher, I expect.

Versatile or powder only?

Imagine the perfect morning, powder on slopes and some light snowfall, this is typically a morning to ski the Armada Norwalk. Through powder this ski is amazing. Turning in powder is light and easy, and also very controlled. But as the day continuous when the slopes become bumpier and soft, the Armanda Norwalk becomes difficult to handle. Then this freeride ski is very stiff, not easy to control and you have to work really hard to turn this ski.

Armada about the Norwalk

"The hardest-charging ski in our men’s DeepEST Series line-up, the Norwalk is a muscle car on snow. A rockered tip lets this ski charge and steer with ease in the powder, while a non-rockered tail stays connected with the snow to keep you directed powerfully when landing. A big mountain ski delivering power and performance that any Detroit assembly line would envy.", says Armada. The wider platform of the Armada Norwalk makes it really easy to ski off-piste through powder, and the ski is also very stable.
